(or, isn't RPM supposed to handle this kind of crap?)

Error: Filter "foomatic-rip" for printer (some printer) not available: No such file or directory

Cause: cups is looking for foomatic.

Solution:

# yum install foomatic

Error: /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed

Cause: foomatic is looking for ghostscript and not finding it.

Solution:

# yum install ghostscript ghostscript-fonts
